The harmonization of the project documentation is in progress, according to which, this demanding section will include 66 tunnels and 27 bridges, apart from the expropriation of agricultural land, no demolition of buildings was foreseen.
"The bridges form one-third of the complete section, one third goes to tunnels, the rest is an embankment, so the works to be completed are going to be complex, and it was agreed with the designers to search for the most optimal solution to provide access to all plots and all locations," Nikola Maksimovic, Director of PE "Uzice razvoj" said for RTS.
